Wind rustling the trees, a red squirrel watching our morning mindfulness practice, unexpected sunshine, delicious home-cooked meals and time to re-connect with the body. These are just some of the simple pleasures of the yoga and mindfulness weekend at the beautiful Haybergill Centre in Cumbria.
The next retreat will be Fri March 15 - Sun March 17, 2019. Keep the date free if you'd relish the chance to de-tox from digital media and rest in a peaceful environment.
Here's what participants said about this year's retreat:-
"This was a wonderful weekend, having a good balance and activities to challenge the body and mind in a caring and safe space. The venue is fab with wonderful food, surroundings and hosts. Pip ensured we had a great weeekend of mindful practice with time to walk, experience the local area and have fun together."
"A truly magical experience. I now feel totally reinvigorated and inspired. The food was amazing, beautiful surroundings - it felt like a very special weekend. A wonderful variety of yoga and mindfulness both inside, in the grounds - and in the fire hut! Always new and inspiring."
"A complete joy. Each time I arrive I feel a strong sense of calm and ease. The early morning outdoor sessions are so energising for the rest of the day - and the food is divine."
A very welcoming place and people in the group. Lots of moments for mindfulness and quiet meditation, which I appreciated. I got a sense of peace and self knowledge."
"A really great weekend of yoga and mindfulness in a beautiful place with a group of lovely people. I feel like I've learnt about and understand my body more and feel the most relaxed I've felt in a long time. I loved all of our different practices - including singing and dancing in the Arctic hut! Thank you Pip - can't wait for the next one!"
